Rahul Dua who shot to fame with a reality show was last seen in the first episode of Comedy Shots which is ZEE5’s first stand-up comedy original. But his journey of comedy began way back as he started out as a comedian while doing a banking job in Mumbai. From doing shows for a mere 10-15 people to now performing in auditoriums with all tickets sold out, Rahul Dua has come a long way.
In an interview with ZEE5, Rahul Dua reminisced that he got a good response for the funny story he told at his first open mic performance. "I started comedy mostly to vent about my life," he said. The same jokes gave him a win in his second open mic. These funny stories worked for him again when he performed as a contestant at a comedy reality show on a popular streaming service.
Rahul Dua went on to take second place on the reality show where Nishant Suri was the winner. There were comparisons drawn saying Rahul Dua being the Amit Sana of Indian comedy. When asked about this tag he said, "I am honored by it, in a way, because it meant a lot people wanted me to win. But I hope it doesn’t hold true because nobody remembers Amit Sana anymore."
He has gone on to tour with Nishant Suri because in his view, "It’s great to travel and perform with a friend rather that doing it alone." He even tours with his second solo show, his first one was called ‘Oh Hello’. He shares an advice he got from another ZEE5 Comedy Shots performer, Gaurav Kapoor, "Be funny for one and a half hour first before deciding if the jokes are socially relevant, relatable, or a hack."
Watch his episode and follow him on social media, for updates about his videos and live shows. He is performing his first international show on the 28th of June at the Queen Elizabeth 2 Theatre in Dubai, so grab those tickets before the sell out.
